The cat who killed Lilian Jackson Braun : a parody by Robert Kaplow( Book )
7 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 721 libraries worldwide
In this wildly funny, biting satire, in which James Qafka, noted children's book author and his cats, Ying-Tong and Poon-Tang, investigate the ghastly murder of Lilian Jackson Braun, Kaplow's shotgun approach shatters his main targets and does a lot of collateral damage as well. Like Mad magazine humor, the zingers come quickly, lancing Britney Spears on one page, delivering a glancing blow to "Murder, She Wrote" on the next and giving a resounding slap to Oprah Winfrey a couple of pages after that

Ich & Orson Welles ( visu )
5 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in German and Undetermined and held by 5 libraries worldwide
Während einer Inszenierung von William Shakespeares "Julius Caesar" 1937 am New Yorker Mercury Theatre durch Orson Welles verliebt sich ein naiver junger Schauspieler in die ebenso schöne wie souveräne Produktionsassistentin. Der Theaterfilm besticht vor allem durch die Sorgfältigkeit und den Elan, mit denen die Entstehung des Bühnenstücks nachgezeichnet wird. Die romantische "Coming of Age"--Geschichte wirkt vor diesem Hintergrund zunächst vergleichsweise banal, entfaltet dann aber durch die Rückkopplung auf die Figur von Orson Welles interessante Facetten.
